Winemaker's Notes:

1 x 75 cl 1995 FRANCE 3-6 weeks arrival

Château Haut-Bages Libéral:
When the Chateau came on the market in 1982, the great names of the Medoc region fought to buy it. The owners of Chasse Spleen were to become the proud owners.

Revealing more grip and tannin since bottling, the 1995 Gruaud-Larose exhibits a dark ruby color, and a nose of sweet black cherries, licorice, earth, and spice. Rich, with medium to full body, high tannin, and subtle oak in the background, the 1995 ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1995 Gruaud Larose 750ml

Revealing more grip and tannin since bottling the 1995 Gruaud-Larose exhibits a dark ruby color and a nose of sweet black cherries licorice earth and spice. Rich with medium to full body high tannin and subtle oak in the background the 1995 is nearly as structured and tannic as the 1996. The two vintages are more similar than dissimilar. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Good deep red-ruby. Somewhat more evolved aromas of redcurrant roasted coffee and smoked meat. Silky and lush in the mouth but with less intensity and charm than the 96. Seems a bit monolithic today. Tannins come across as slightly dry after the 96. 88(+?) points Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Intense aromas of crushed blackberries licorice and Spanish cedar. Full-bodied concentrated and structured. Give it some time.-- 95/ 96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. -JS Wine Spectator.
